It's been a wild week at the border between the border of Texas and Mexico. Two women were busted trying to smuggle illicit drugs into Texas at the Hildago-Reynosa International Bridge. What had happened was...the first woman was busted smuggling in some meth in the car she was driving and the other lady thought she would get away with trying to sneak in some cocaine in hers...
Art is by its very nature subjective, and the effort to classify art equally so. Some might argue, for instance, that Showtime’s Twin Peaks aired on television in episodic installments, and is therefore unmistakably TV. A number of year-end movie critics’ lists beg to differ, however, and now Kyle MacLachlan himself is getting in on the great debate.
It took sixteen weeks (and almost two years before that), but Twin Peaks has finally brought us its complete “Return,” departing with an even bigger cliffhanger than the one twenty-six years ago. Showtime hasn’t indicated any attempt to pursue more episodes, but star Kyle MacLachlan weighs in if Cooper’s story might continue.
Showtime’s Twin Peaks may not have offered the ratings smash network heads hoped, but its online presence has given the mystery drama a major boost. Now, ahead of Sunday’s fifth episode premiere, new Twin Peaks is coming back in style with the first two episodes streaming free.
Showtime’s ‘Twin Peaks’ remains as maddeningly cryptic as ever, but hits just the right note of Lynch-ian weirdness and intrigue, like a fine (if lukewarm) cup of coffee. Our review, after Sunday’s two-part premiere.
It looks like neither Showtime, nor David Lynch were pulling our legs after all: Twin Peaks is back! Atop the four new episodes available to watch on streaming, Showtime has released the updated opening credits for the 2017 series, haunting theme music and all.
The jury’s out on whether we’ll see an actual Twin Peaks trailer before Showtime premieres its May 21 revival, and even the last promo only gave us shots of the town itself. Thankfully, those characters you like are coming back in style, with some actual (albeit absurdly cryptic) footage of new Twin Peaks!
It’s looking less and less likely that Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival will debut any actual footage before the May 21 premiere, but there’s another way to get your bearings. Relive the series’ key moments and mythology with a brief refresher on everything you need to know for new Twin Peaks.
Close to thirty years will have passed when Twin Peaks resurrects on Showtime, to say nothing of how broadcast and cable standards have changed. Still, don’t expect the 2017 revival to undergo any graphic overhaul, as Showtime bosses reveal David Lynch is “taking advantage of cable freedoms,” but “David’s pretty clean.”
At this point, we’ve no idea what to expect from Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival, particularly if David Lynch will allow for any real trailer. All the same, our first official look at the cast’s grand return is here, along with a few scant new details of the “feature film in 18 parts.”
